WALTER POPJOY was born in Wiltshire, England, in 1831, emigrated to America in 1851, and engaged himself on a farm in Pennsylvania; in 1858, he commenced fishing on the Delaware River, and continued in that pursuit until 1870, when he came to Union County, Iowa, and purchased and improved eighty acres of land in the southwest corner of Douglas Township, which, after the old English fashion, is called "Maplewood farm."

He married, in 1864, a daughter of Captain Talman, of Marens Hook, Pa., and thinks that Union County is the best farming country he was ever in.
